    Congratulations to BillyJack's detailing of his 87 El Camino

    Congratulations to MOL Member BillyJack on the detailing and condition of his 1987 El Camino.
    This two tone truck sports the original paint from 33 years ago.
    His paint correction and protection efforts on the paint and truck resulted in selection for a 2020 National El Camino Owner's Association Calendar cover car.

    Thanks, guys.
    In reality, my choice of background ( a mural on the local VFW Post) was likely more responsible for the selection as a cover car, but I'll take the praise anyway.
    I owe the appearance of my Camino solely to the things I learned from both here and the Autogeek forum. Ten years ago, when a job change forced me to lose a company car, the Camino was pressed into DD service thru 9 months of PA weather and the old paint showed the effects of the exposure. Thanks to a tutorial by Mike Phillips, then the trainer and moderator here, I learned the technique of force-feeding M07 into the parched paint, making it much more responsive to polishing and correction. It was truly a game-changer to the tired, old lacquer. My truck has all the maladies of 30 year old lacquer, checking, crazing and oxidation, but thanks to the knowledge acquired here, they're all overcome by the level of gloss I've been able to achieve.
    Thanks again.

    Bill
